Planting flowers in one's front yard adds to the beauty of one's home. In addition, front yard flowers allow a person to share the beauty of Mother Nature's gifts.
Neighbors and even total strangers passing by can be uplifted when they see lovely, colorful blooms.
My hubs is great at planting flowers along the brick walkway leading to our front steps. He also planted pretty impatiens at the base of a large tree in our front yard.
New this summer are brick borders under the tree as well as in a round flower garden that includes a tree stump. Sadly, the tree that used to stand there died and falling branches became a nuisance as well as a liability. There was no choice but to remove the tree.
In the spring, I planted pink impatiens around the stump. At first, they looked very spindly and kind of sickly. However, they have filled out and now, the result, is attractive.
We also put flowers in the white window boxes and they have done well.
Summer and all its beauty does the heart good, don't you think?
